Emma Morano, last person alive born in 1800s, turns 117 – “I eat two eggs a day, and that’s it. And cookies. But I do not eat much because I have no teeth.”

Born November 29th, 1899. Guinness World Records  declared her to be the oldest person alive. Eldest of eight children. Lives in Verbania, a town in northern Italy on Lake Maggiore. Our thoughts and prayers are with her on her special day.  A special toast to long life for all.
